Subject: Nothin left to do but smile
Been a wharf rat back on my feet for 22 years now. Still love the music. Still makes me smile. No need to change that.
Subject: very spacey Dark Star

Subject: another fab '73
The sound quality isn't great, but I've had worse tapes that I listened to until they couldn't be played anymore. You can hear every band member pretty clearly on this recording, and a little audience noise in places, but this is well worth your time.
One complaint though---there is someone in the audience that won't stop blowing their fuckin' whistle in places, which is annoying.
Subject: You kids these days.....
Thanks for reading and enjoy a glorious concert!!
Subject: Disk 3 = 5, Rest = 3
Disks 1 and 2 don't have much in the way of setlist, although The H.C. Sunshine is gorgeous. I'm still giving it 5 on the strength of the Dark Star.
Subject: SBD section (disc 3) is on other seed!!!
Subject: Tight Show, Difficult Sound
i wish the archive had 2 seperate ratings, 1 for sound and 1 for the show itself...in that case, a 2 for sound and a 4 for performance make this show a 3 in my book...a tolerable listen but hurts the ears....
Subject: love the audience banter
Subject: TLEO always.
A fantastic show I havnt heard in a while, and is making my day at work, go by that much easier!
I give it a five for the overall performance, list, and sound.
Subject: Top Ten???
Even though amazing jazz fusion-ish jams are plentiful in 1973,this one is in a catagory by itself. It's as if the cosmic mind opened up the gates and allowed Jerry and the band to channel the spirits of Miles, Coletrane, Hendrix and Mozart all together. When you seriously think of the all-time greatest Dead jams (the Ithaca 77 St. Stephen>NFA,or the 5/11/72 Dark Star, or the 45 minute Playin from 5/21/74) this one belongs in the club. One of the most spectacular 60 minutes in Dead history. If you're into long innovative and magical jams, get this show! If I could hear a good SBD copy of the whole show, it would likely make my top ten. But as is, I can definitely give this selection 5 stars. BTW - I usually don't take sound quality into consideration in reviewing. As long as it's a SBD, I assume all boots will have some hiss, etc. especially 60's-70's shows. My ratings are mostly based on the music itself. The last portion is so good, you almost don't need the rest of the show (AUD). And yes, this is probably the best Dark Star of 1973. How many places can they take you in 31 minutes? Find out! Hey Phil - how about leaking the rest of this show out of the vault? Enjoy the jams,friends.
Dr. Flashback ;-)

Subject: my favorite dark star
this is the ultimate in jazz dark stars, my life is that much more complete with this on my hard drive. a topper to this would make my day. see also 9.11.73. this archive.org can become a great venue for critique as we finally have access to EVERY version of EVERY song. and what song is more like a good wine than a great dark star?
i rate this a 5 for the dark star alone. forget the audience/quality aspect, go for the gold!
thank you archive.org for bringing this show back into my life after missing the tape for 10 years.
